This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens. SO simple and great to include on a holiday cookie platter. I loved changing the topping sugars to colored sugars that went with the season - like green and red for Xmas.

- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemons, rind of
